A former Philadelphia police officer, once hailed as a hero and given a seat next to the first lady at a 2009 speech by President Obama, has been arrested and charged with rape and other crimes.
Authorities allege that Richard DeCoatsworth left a party with two females early Thursday and took them to another location, where they say that he produced a handgun and “forced the two females to engage in the use of narcotics and sexual acts.”

A woman says that she warned police she was filming a fatal encounter between six of them and another man. She says police took her phone before she could post the video to the Web. There are now suggestions the footage was deleted.
This is in regards to the California father who was beat to death by six cops as he begged for his life.
The incident that resulted in the suspension occurred Nov. 15 when Lisa Freeman, a social worker with the state Department of Children and Families, called police to the home of Karla Huaman to help her get her son to a court-ordered psychological evaluation related to truancy.

In the suit, Huaman and Freeman described a violent attack by Tinsley after the boy refused to get off the couch, saying the officer “exploded” and threw him to the ground, punching and kicking the handcuffed child.
